  • Sentra lineup expands for 2017 with new Sentra SR Turbo – powered by new 188-horsepower 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIGÔ) turbocharged engine
  • SR Turbo starting MSRP just $21,990 for both 6-speed manual and Xtronic transmission versions
  • Sentra S, SV, SR and SL grades continue to offer standard 124 horsepower 1.8-liter inline 4-cylinder – Sentra S 6MT starts at $16,990
  • All 2017 Sentra models offer improved interior quietness and nearly double the storage capacity in the front center console
Nissan today announced U.S. pricing for the 2017 Nissan Sentra and new Sentra SR Turbo. Normally aspirated Sentra models are on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide, while the new SR Turbo becomes available in October.
The Nissan Sentra, the company's third best-selling vehicle behind Altima and Rogue, has been a mainstay in the compact sedan segment for 35 years and seven generations. Following a consistent stream of product enhancements year after year – along with steadily increasing sales – Sentra kicks things up a few notches with the addition of the new SR Turbo.


Based on the popular Sentra SR grade, which accounts for more than 15 percent total Sentra sales, the new SR Turbo maintains the SR's unique sporty exterior, interior and wheel treatments, but with 50 percent more horsepower.
All 2017 Sentra grades include improved interior quietness due to increased front and rear window glass thickness and nearly double the storage capacity in the front center console.

At the heart of the 2017 SR Turbo is its new 1.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline (DIGÔ) turbocharged engine rated at 188 horsepower at 5,600 RPM and 177 lb-ft of torque at 1,600 - 5,200 RPM – 64 more horsepower and 52 more lb-ft of torque (41 percent more) than the non-turbo 2017 Sentra SR grade's 1.8-liter powerplant.
As expected of a vehicle with an engine like the 1.6-liter turbo, the Sentra SR Turbo is available with a 6-speed manual transmission, with gear ratios selected to take maximum advantage of the engine's powerband and torque curve. The SR Turbo is also offered with an advanced Xtronic transmission with manual mode, a version unique to the SR Turbo to match the new engine's performance. To help handle the increased power and torque, significant changes were made to the suspension, steering and brakes to give the new SR Turbo a great driving feel.
A number of Nissan's advanced Safety Shield Technologies and convenience features are available on the 2017 Sentra, including Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA). Also available are Siri Eyes Free™ voice recognition, Bose® Premium audio system with eight speakers, and NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Mobile Apps
